The Finns may not be as ripped, but they are mad, silent and simply unable to quit as long as they are able to draw breath. If a Finn is able to breath, they’re able to drink, and as long as they able to drink, they are just fine, should anyone ask. No matter how hard they are hit, and no matter how hard they fall, they keep fighting toward their next failure, and fight on again. That is simply poetic, and deserves yet another song written about.
Womack proudly endorses the Finnish way of life, and refuses to quit as well, come whatever may!
Says the band: “Womack is a 4-man rock band, formed in 2010 in their hometown Forssa, Finland. These men live and breathe to bring you their own brand of heavy rock mixing together the cornerstones of their own musical tastes: 70s rock and 90s metal fused together, that’s what we love and that’s what we play.
We released our first full-length album »Prehab« in 2014 and captured our bands spirit pretty well, at least the spirit that we had back then.

We explored our sound a bit deeper in 2016 when we released our second album »Strays« which was made completely with acoustic guitars. You be the judge while listening to »Strays” but we dare say we did a fine job with that album too and grew a lot as songwriters in the process.
That improved songwriting has now been put to the test in the process of writing and recording our third album »Womack III – Songs Of Downfall And Deliverance«. We started tracking this monster back in 2016 and have been perfecting it ever since. The road to a completed album has been long and hard but that was basically what we were aiming for: slow and steady, no hurry, no rush.
We are extremely proud of the direction we have taken with the songs on album number three and can’t wait to bring you our new baby. It’s filled with songs we love and did our best to perfect.
It’s everything we grew up with, brought to this day and adding our own personal touch.
Love it or leave it, it’s what we do.”
